Whatever Happened to Childhood?
Elkind, David
Momentum, v24 n2 p18-19 Apr-May 1993
Perceives an increase in adult expectations of children's competence and a concomitant narrowing of what is considered normal child behavior. Questions the growing practice of placing children in "transition,""pre-K," and "pre-first" classes, and in pull-out "gifted" programs. Calls for greater acceptance of variety among children. (PAA)
